"The Swift Flight Form is now available on the trainer at level 71, requiring 300 riding skill, and Flight Form learned. "So Druids will no longer have the fast form of flight at level 70?

It probably means you can do the quest at 70(for anyone who doesn't upgrade to Wrath, and anyone still leveling and will hit 70 before Wrath) or you can just level to 71 and get it from the trainer.

I think that means that future leveling druids, after the expack comes out, will not need to find a group to get their epic flyers. Like Locks still have to get their Epic Ground mount.

Ah, that makes sense. My Druid alt is only level 32 so I have not got there yet

I think this means that you won't have to do the long quest to get it anymore, you can just train it at 71.
They didn't say they are removing the quest chain but after wrath it'll be hard for new druids to get a Heroic Sethekk Halls run so they can train it at 71.

You can still do the quest.../bonk
Well, thats not true. Flight form is trainable at the druid trainer at 68. This is a mangy crow-like form that is just as slow as the regular riding mount that everyone else gets at 70. To get "swift flight form", there was a quest chain after you paid your 5000g for your swift flight training, that sent you all over Kalimdor and Outlands ending with a Heroic Sethekk Halls and summoning (and defeating) an optional boss. The quest itself is pretty epic, and a great late game story-arch for druids, and I will be sad to see it go. It really made you feel like you accomplished something, and got you involved in some of the most interesting class lore out there. To see if trainable at 71, if you paid the riding skill fee I think is a bit of a joke. Since when a druid hits 68 now, he will be off to Northrend and not be able to use that skill till 77. I think it's lame, unless flight form is useable at an earlier time.

I still do H Seth whenever I can find a group because I still want my bird mount.

Good thing they won't remove the quest, because there's a trinket from the chain that increases Flight Form speed, to compensate for Riding Crops and such doing nothing for Druids. But with the removal of riding crops and carrots, will the Flight Form Trinket disappear too?

RogueJedi86:The flight form trinket is now pretty much trash. Instead of improving flight speed, it just reduces the mana cost of Flight Form and Swift Flight Form by a bit.If you're gonna do the Swift Flight Form quest, do it for the experience of it and not for the trinket.

They already changed the trinket. Now it just reduces the mana cost of flight form and swift flight form by 115. Which, by the way, makes it pretty much useless.
